Cold, flu and allergies trigger these types of headaches. Often described as neck & head pain, sinus headaches create a condition in which the patient's face feels tender to the touch, and sometimes they will experience an extreme heaviness around the area of the forehead, eyes and jaw. Typically, antihistamines relieve this pain, but it comes back as a "rebound," and often worse than before, triggering a vicious cycle.
Doctor’s Treatment Plan
Although colds and allergies are the main causes of these headaches, Chiropractic care is the only non-invasive, natural treatment that creates a neurological reflex that assists in opening up the pathways of the sinuses. Ridding the body of access mucus, you can prevent further sinus infections and alleviate the symtoms of headache. Shiatsu, pressure point therapy, skilled spinal manipulation and dietary counseling are some of the techniqes that may be used.
